The Tustin Unified School District continues to serve the community by providing meals to children and distance learning to TUSD students, and maintaining school facilities in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
As a reminder to the community, all TUSD schools and the District Administration Center are closed through Friday, April 10. Individuals who need assistance can call the District at (714) 730-7301.
Tustin Unified continues to monitor the coronavirus situation and receives guidance provided by the State of California and Orange County public health and education agencies. The April 10 date may be extended as health conditions change.
Beginning Monday, March 30, Tustin Unified will provide Grab-and-Go breakfast and lunch meals three days per week – Monday, Tuesday and Thursday – from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Robert Heideman Elementary School, 15571 Williams Street; A.G. Currie Middle School, 1401 Sycamore Avenue; and Tustin High School, 1171 El Camino Real. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students will receive four meals – two for the current day and two for the next day. Meal service will continue as long as schools are closed.
The meals are provided at no cost to all children 18 years and younger (it is not necessary for them to be in the free and reduced lunch program). Service is set up as a drive-thru style for pickup; however, walk-ups are accepted. For more information, call the TUSD Nutrition Services Department at (714) 730-7301, ext. 396.
Tustin Unified is keeping the community informed in this changing situation. The public is encouraged to check the TUSD website regularly at https://www.tustin.k12.ca.us.
